Group: Karaoke Etiquette

Can I change my song?

Sure! We want you to be the best you can be! Just let us know a couple songs before you’re supposed to sing so we have the time to set things up and download tracks if necessary. No harm, no foul! Even if you get up to the stage and panic, we can fix it…
